Mi piace il Calcio…I like Soccer

January 31, 2011


Dear Afternoon Naps, You make me feel so much better when I am molto stanca (very tired)! After watching some Sex & the City in Italian I became even more tired. My brain has processed so much in the last 60 days! These boys wear me out and learning this new language is not as […]

Dear Caffe Corretto, I knew that I would forever prefer you but NOT after all the drinks that I “taste-tested” last night!! Caffe Corretto is a little espresso with Sambuca or other liquor. Probably a better idea in the daytime versus the night time. Caffe jacks me up! Probably always better solo, not after mounds of […]

Dear Biglietto, If I wanted to purchase a “monthly” bus ticket (biglietto), which I considered, I should have tried it last month. I don’t even know where to purchase one but the place that sells the  bus tickets is called a Biglietteria, I do know that much. Now that I have 26 years, the price goes up for old people! […]

Cinquanta giorni a Roma…50 days in Rome!

January 24, 2011


Dear Italian Course, I have been in school now for 2 weeks and have 2 weeks to go. I realized and counted…50 days I have been here. This language is molto difficile…(very difficult…)! Sure, I can get by so far but I want to speak correctly with less mistakes sooner than later. I believe that the […]
